I have confidence in him, I can't wait for his VIDEO IN SPACE~~~~~~~eee
No word yet from Noboru, but I absolutely still believe in Him, his talents, and especially the Backers, running a Kickstarter is perhaps the most challenging activity a person can attempt.. sometimes Creators need a bit of rest before re-engaging.. I'm not excusing absence, just saying a lot of patience might be in order.. Butterflies start out as caterpillars, then they hibernate for a long period in a cocoon, then emerge as butterflies, able to literally fly around the world, like Monarch's do.. so... I'd say our burrito boy, Noboru Bitoy, is likely to spread his creative wings and surprise us with a better set of projects sometime soon, so I agree with Daver, so much hope, and lots of waiting.. and i still actually totally Believe in Noboru, especially his art, his wit, and I'm very curious to see what he can do next... that said, I understand the previous comments totally also..
Anyone heard anything from Noboru yet, or is he still up in the ISS? When is he coming back down for that matter?
hmmm... so much hope, so much... waiting... :c(
I read in the WSJ that Noboru is still on his victory lap, onboard the ISS with Sir Richard Branson, Virgin Galactic, and the CEO of Chipotle!! Burritos in space!
Noboru! We need you, o master of deliciousness! AF and I need your graphs!
About Pak Hoi Tung: yes, several of us agree with you... we can use Noboru's assistance in determining the Deliciousness of a few different pickles.. and MARTINI's.. Noboru is King.
just Ask Daver... !!!(⊙.⊙(☉o☉)⊙.⊙)!!!
I say the graph for those yummy pickles should be their flavor: Sweetness, sourness, spiciness, and such. You do it, we'll back you. I'm not a big fan of pickles, but with your graph, I'll know which one I can get for my family who loves pickles.
Daver is prescient, and correct.. our Earth would be a better place if Noboru Bitoy helps us postulate perfected pickles.. with a graph.. and a smile... Cheshire style... thank you in advance for a sublime cameo... Daver has generously offered to pay for your pickles + parcel postage, pronto.. your mission: should you choose to accept, will be a worthy and hilarious world changing hope inspiring solution for anyone contemplating a mysterious pickle situation.
oh, Judy Cakes, Perfected Pickle Chef, she's a ninja... so be careful... FYI...
Now you need to graph the deliciousness of these pickles:!
@Pak Hoi Tung: Yes, agreed: Next Big Idea: Can Virgin Galactic Help? In Space are there are No Burritos? To Infinity and Beyond!
So Noboru, what's your next big idea? Different fast food fries? T-bone steaks at different restaurants? Let us know so we can back again!!
I'm proud to help Noboru's dream project come true. He delivered all rewards in record time with the highest production quality possible. 10/10 would back again.
Proud to be a backer.
Thank you for your time,
$1K, pretty impressive...!
Noboru, I want you to know that this was and always will be the 100th Kickstarter campaign that I backed.
I'm concerned about the risk to the burrito, which seems very at-risk, especially when falling from the heavens at terminal velocity. Things could get out of hand! We're talking hundred mile gale force winds here.. nothing like this has ever been attempted Noboru.. I doubt Chipotle even tested their burrito-wrappers for these high altitude conditions, maybe some Tyvek could be used to re-wrap the burrito, and goggles to keep the flying beans out of your eyes... want nose plugs too?
What type of control burrito of the 24 will you use for the skydive? :c)
oh, i only request because I know you can do it bro!
no jokes in a week? what gives? we need more jokes Norboru!
Good going... thats a lot of burritos...
Yes Noboru, especially because of your project, we can all have hope.. more than before your burritos burst upon the scene [not the floor, just on Kickstarter]
Joseph- We can only hope now, can't we!
Daver- The media will do what the media does- follow the buzz, not create it. I am working to get into a plane sooner than March 29 so I can complete the skydive graph for you guys!
It appears things have stalled somewhat--we need more publicity. Good Morning America? Hello?
Noboru, the way you've handled this project is deft, super smart, hilarious.. now, personally, i hope the graph is really world class... burrito guidance for the ages, epic, a poster that people keep and hand down to their children's children, in remembrance of the time before the revelations of your world changing chart... I hope it launches your space career.. the first burrito bearing astronaut, chosen because Sir Richard Branson and Virgin Galactic recognize you'd bring incredible strengths to their Space Cadet Corps of Future Astronauts. And it serves as a lesson to creators that post whimsically brilliant projects on Kickstarter... be careful what you ask for... Kickstarter might just launch you into your wildest fantasies and dreams. Willy Wonka, for example, might be inspired by you to launch a kickstarter project, learning from your example and comedic genius.
Joshua- I've made a new reward that is similar- A burrito lunch over Skype! The participants will be included in a video. Thanks for your enthusiasm, you've no idea how good it feels for me to get someone psyched!
Sam- New targets made!
Devon- How incredible would that be??
Daver- Your wish is my command.
Holly- Because of you and people like you, I am compelled to stretch the goals even further. Because of your carb limitation, you've allowed me a carb increase. The least I can do for your generosity is give you a great show!
Joseph- Richard Branson is a personal hero of mine... It would be a wild dream come true to fly into space with the guy.
Steven- The more you love the project, the more it loves you back! Thanks again for the support!
Kelsey- Thanks for the wise advice! There's always a risk that it won't happen- this project was a risk to begin with. No matter what happens, one way or another I can guarantee that gravity is going to have to take a break for my burrito.
I have no doubt in the generosity of chicken burrito lovers out there, BUT-
If you should fall short of $6,000, don't let that end the scientific research.
Consumption in a limo?
Consumption while at a death metal concert vs. the symphony?
Consumption while watching the series finale of Breaking Bad, or more ironically the Inside documentary on Chipotle's business acumen that's on Netflix?
If the impossible happens and somehow this stretch goal is not met 100%, consider other alternatives that would further the cause.
I know you'll use our investments wisely, regardless.
Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of something great.
Just want to say - that I love this project, and I can't wait to see where it ends up!

I am on a low carb diet and cannot fully enjoy my burritos anymore as a result. When I saw this on HLN news today, I knew this was by far the most worthy fundraiser for me to support. When I read further and saw you will be skydiving while eating a burrito I then knew I could live vicariously through you on more than one level. I do, however, think you can stretch your burrito goals even further. Keep going! Where will the next burrito take you?
This is the most considerate kickstarter I have ever been a part of:
1. Giving the world better research on burritos
2. Always budgeting for the tip
More... stretch... GOALS! please...
This is brilliant. I kind of want to make a documentary film about it.
You've almost reached the highest % funded on kickstarter, which is over 11,000% funded!
You need to set some more targets. 20 days to go...? You could probably earn a million by then!.Taste burritos around the world or something!
You should add a reward where you will tell the time and location of when you will be eating the burrito to those who back at that level. Id love to share a burrito experience with you.
eating a burrito while falling from the heavens, perhaps a prelude to burritos in space... very creative outcome. it's a study in Kickstarter creativity, post a burrito project, ending up being shot up into space to eat it.. very fun, and a pretty graph to boot! lovely.
TJ- check your messages!
Joseph- Thanks for being a big support since day 1!
I just backed your $50 -- reach out to me please, contact at tjweber.com ! yay! Awesome project!
I too love burritos. I also love skydiving. Have an idea for you. Check your inbox good sir!
Dear No Burrito Boy Noboru Bitoy, who could possibly be against you? perhaps they are just hungry and harassing you to bust your concentration, hoping to catch a dropped chicken Chipotle?... or they think that your hogging all 24 of the burritos amounts to selfishness?.. but it's a blessed Kickstarter mission seeking salient salsa answers (Gotta Guac? or Not?).. probably the detractors work at Taco Bell and are just a bit green watching your Gourmet plans, knowing they Can't Touch This!!
John- Wow I never saw that, and I've been looking at my name for a pretty long time! If the chute fails, at least I get a last meal. I'm ok with that.
We need a promise that the burrito will still be consumed even if the parachute fails to deploy.
Noboru Bitoy... anagrams to... No Burito Boy. A pirate must have stolen his "r".
Joseph- Thanks again! I just realized that I'm getting a bit of criticism from a few third parties, so it's good to know I have your support!
Blake- Thanks for your support! I'm glad you're having as much fun with this as I am!
Daver- Good question... maybe one day we will know the answer!
Hey Noboru, this project gives me an idea. The Color of Taste, a project with many parts. Each part has different types/cuisine of food. I'm not going to make it a project, maybe you can.
I need to know what IS the most delicious chicken burrito...
This must be one of the most fulfilling pledges I have ever made. This project basks in good vibes and because of my pledge, now I do too. Thank you for being on Kickstarter. You made my day.
@Justin: I agree, this is a great project, especially, it has the opportunity to really expand, and it can either become an SNL comedy skit, or a serious design project, or a standup-comedy thread for hilarious backers bearing super funny jokes, or more.. and nobody knows better than Noboru what rabbits are coming out of the hat next...
it's particularly telling that most of the backers have pledged to many many projects... discerning and wise to this site, and this project merited their support, that's really exceptional, and a very serious design project opportunity underneath all the hilarity. It suggests we should have awards every year for best projects in many categories.. this would be a finalist for comedy projects, and hopefully it will be finalist for the design outcome too.. great work Noboru, no project ever made me laugh so much... blessings
Pak- There was/will be/can be additional dressings, but they will not be a part of this test- the combinations will simply be too high! I figure that Chipotle has decided to place the important choices at the beginning of the burrito assembly, so that's what I will focus on. And speaking of new stretch goals... I have something really great planned. STAY TUNED!
Justin- Thanks, I really appreciate it. I have to admit, it's been more successful than I thought! Make sure to tell a few friends about what we have going on here : )
